Drug trafficking ‘penetrates’ Dominican Republic police, judges
Santo Domingo.- Justice minister Francisco Domínguez on Sunday said authorities such as Antinarcotics (DNCD) agents and even judges are in complicity with drug pushers. ”Drug trafficking corrodes everything: youth, the national police, the DNCD, and even bribe judges and prosecutors at any given time.”
He said there are communities where the confiscation of drugs isn’t reported even when the traffickers are known.
Speaking on Santo Domingo TV, the official said there are big problems with area drug pushers and medium traffickers , which often corrupt law enforcement agencies.“We as a nation, as a society cannot afford to let narco-trafficking penetrate the institutions."
